I am currently a graduate student in the Child Brain Development lab in the department of Human Development and Family Studies at Pennsylvania State University. I completed my B.A. in Psychology and M.Sc. in Neuroscience at Trinity College Dublin. My work involves the use of psychophysiological measures (fMRI, EEG, EDA) and experimental paradigms in order to explore how factors at the biological and environmental/experiential levels of analysis interact to contribute to pathological behaviors. I am particularly interested in investigating how individual differences in reward processing, cost estimation and risk assessment contribute to the development of both internalizing and substance use disorders.
Feel free to contact me if you have similar research interests, or if you would like to hear more about being a Human Development graduate student here at Penn State.
